On November 24, 9stacks will be hosting a highly anticipated poker event in India. The first-ever Heads Up Poker Championship will take place via the online poker brand, providing players in the country with epic action. The championship will take place in No-Limit Hold’em format with a buy-in of INR 5500. There are no second chances, so players must be smart as they make decisions and work their way to the final round!
Details of the Event
The championship event will begin with 64 players. As the event advances, the number of players will be reduced by half. By the end, only two players will remain, taking on each other in the final heads-up round to name a champion. The winner of the event will earn a trophy, cash prize, and of course, the title of Heads Up Champion.
The event will take place over two weeks and includes $200,000 in prize money for the first-place finisher. Co-founder of 9stacks, Sudhir Kamath, commented on the upcoming event by stating:
“At 9stacks, we believe in constantly looking for new and exciting avenues to promote poker. One extremely competitive format of poker is HEADS UP format where only two players at a time go head to head against each other – almost like a boxing match! For the first time, we’ve been able to conceptualize a tournament in this format which will identify ONE winner out of a select field of 64 players – someone truly deserving to be called a CHAMPION. Looking forward to some intense matches!”
